What did the Pope really say about, you know, all of that?
Mark Mallet created a rather good reference page on what the Holy Father has said about key issues which critics have made claims he desires to change Catholic teaching on. Again, I believe the reformers of the reform along with many other Tradsters, who were hoping that Pope Benedict would be the one to restore the kingdom of pre-Vatican II papal grandeur and liturgical rites, are actually the ones creating the most confusion. But I digress. (My opinion means nothing of course, uneducated and steeped in sin since birth as I am. Vatican groupies, professional students and radio commentators, who follow elderly, traditionalist prelates and would-be royal-pretenders, obviously know much more than I do.)
I'm not a subscriber or follower of Mark Mallet but for a charismatic prophecy type of guy, he seems very balanced and faithful. Anyway, check out Mallet's 'reference page' on the Holy Father's statements, which demonstrates that he truly is a faithful son of the Church - and the Pope,
